High Protein Avocado Toast (vegan)

VHP

high protein avocado toast 1I’ve been feeling guilty at the end of my yoga sessions of late. I am refreshed and rejuvinated by the final savasana and the caramel alto of my superwoman-of-an-instructor Amy’s voice. But then she asks us to wish for peace and harmony of all living creatures.

And there’s the rub–because from late spring to early fall, I carry a death wish for mosquitoes.

It’s this: I am a mosquito magnet. Kevin gets nary a bite, even when they are swarming. It’s just not right fair.

Noxious sprays have little effect on my mosquito deliciousness, so I’ve been taking an internal route this summer: eating to avoid the pesky beasts.

According to the research, both garlic and foods rich in potassium can make me unpalatable to the pests. I decided that no one (including me) would be interested in a garlicky banana recipe, so I settled on another potassium rich food for my garlic pairing: avocados. In addition to being creamy and delicious, one avocado has about twice the amount of potassium as a banana.

I have been eating plain avocado toast for a few months (mashed with some lemon, then spread on toast), but I decided to add some white beans to this version, to up my morning protein and accompany the garlic I was adding.

Oh my goodness. I have high hope for this recipe as my new mosquito repellent, but in the meantime, it’s my favorite new power breakfast. I hope you give it a try!
